Welcome to the Welsh Orthopaedic Society

The Welsh Orthopaedic Society was formed in 1987 and is an important forum for Welsh Orthopaedic Surgeons.

As the number of Orthopaedic Surgeons continues to increase, the Welsh Orthopaedic Society will remain a focus for the discussion of orthopaedic research and teaching issues in the Principality.
